AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Discusses the representation of contemporary Sydney and its harbour in Dark's novel Waterway. It argues that the novel sits poised between Dark's 'popular/modernist 1930s novels and her historical trilogy, between her more commercial early work ... and her growing commitment to social responsibility', and that it was written at a time when the writer was learning 'to look back at history to find answers for the present' (16).
